Yasmin consists of Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol. You had taken for nearly 20 weeks and when you stopped it your symptoms will decrease in maximum 4 weeks. As you have already stopped using Yasmin for more than 5 weeks there are other reasons for your symptoms.

Follow up with your gastroenterologist to rule out any complication after your recent surgery. Take appropriate treatment for any acidity issues.

Follow up for a proper diagnosis and treatment for your anxiety symptoms. Monitor all your vitals and keep blood pressure in control.

Take care!
